At ESA you don’t get to choose any of our courses until your 3rd or 4th year. Even then, the choice is mostly between studios (i.e. which professor you prefer) and maybe an either/or elective option.

I chose to take the art class, and two more engineering based courses: “Methodology of Structures” and “Construction”.

This is a record of Middlebury students spending their junior year abroad at architectural school. I am attending l’École Spéciale d’Architecture and Jesse will soon be in Italy to attend the architecture school at the University of Ferrara.
